I stayed at the Hotel Niwa in early November. I arrived after a business trip in Europe and flew into Narita Airport.. This was first visit to Japan and I was on my way to Osaka to visit my son who is on a six month assignment. I have to admit to being cautious flying into a country where I knew next to no language and only the vaguest idea how to get to the hotel (I had meant to do my research before leaving home but never found the time)!! I needn't have worried. The reception received from airport staff through to the hotel was polite, courteous and patient. I send my large bag directly to Osaka from the airport (it is a nightmare travelling with lots of baggage on public transport in Japan - so I was pleased to know about this service!!) After purchasing a Suica special pass combined with Narita Express ticket and a one way ticket on the shinkasen to Osaka, I negotiated my way from the airport to the hotel with the minimum of confusion (even though there was a couple of change overs).
And what a wonderful place to stay (thank you for the recommendation Trip Advisor)! I arrived at the hotel a little worse for wear having stepped off a 12 hour flight, plus train transfer into a very warm Tokyo day. The staff were so polite and welcoming and I was shown straight to my room. Small (by western standards perhaps) but immaculately clean and with every possible convenience! I loved the pajamas - what a lovely touch. I never quite got the hang of the air conditioning but opened the window for fresh air. The free Wi-Fi is much appreciated - and I used an adapter supplied by reception until I hit "Electric City" and made my own purchase. The hotel is very well situated with a well stocked 7/11 right next door and many restaurants within walking distance. The railway station was very close and the underground not far. I travel alone and felt very safe at the hotel and walking around the neighbourhood. I have recommended the hotel to my son (a reasonably priced and wonderfully central place to stay) when he gets a weekend off!
I recommend this hotel highly - it is a great place to stay!! Thanks so much.
